Frozen Turkey? How to Properly Thaw a Turkey


How to Properly Thaw a Frozen Turkey

Safely thawing a turkey is one of the most important steps in your meal prep.

  • Refrigerator thawing is preferred and the least labor-intensive but requires more time.
  • Cold water thawing takes less time but requires more attention.

Regardless of which method you choose, never thaw a turkey at room temperature. If you’re running low on time, try a Fresh Whole Turkey—they’re just as delicious and require little prep.

How to Properly Thaw a Turkey


Frozen Whole Turkeys and Frozen Whole Turkey Breasts need to be thawed before cooking. For the best results, follow one of these methods:


  • Thaw breast side up, in an unopened wrapper on a tray in the fridge (40 degrees F or below).
  • Allow at least 1 day of thawing for every 4 lbs.
  • Keep turkey in original wrapper and place on tray.
  • Use within 4 days after thawing.


  • Thaw turkey breast side down, in an unopened wrapper, with enough cold water to cover your turkey completely.
  • Change water every 30 minutes and if turkey cannot be completely covered, rotate every 30 minutes to keep the thawed turkey chilled.
  • Estimate a minimum thawing time of 30 minutes per lb.

Some Butterball products are made to go from freezer to the oven, skillet or grill without thawing. Be sure not to thaw our:

Frozen Stuffed Whole Turkeys
Frozen Ready to Roast Breast Roasts
Frozen Ready to Roast Boneless Roasts


For the best flavor, you should use our products by their use-by date. However, if you’re unable to cook the food by then you can save it for later by safely freezing it with these instructions:

  • Freeze the product before the use-by date.
  • Thaw using the Refrigerator Thawing or Cold Water method above.
  • Consume product within 2-4 days of thawing.

  28. A lot of of whatever you state is supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This particular article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject goes. Nonetheless there is 1 position I am not necessarily too cozy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the position, let me see what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Nicely done.
